NanoRelease Food Additive


NEWS AND UPDATES

Apri 2013: At the April 16, 2013 NanoRelease Food Additive Webinar, Task Groups 1-5 presented their findings as relevant to the development of measurement methods for assessing the oral uptake of engineered nanomaterials.​


DEVELOPING METHODS TO MEASURE RELEASE OF NANOPARTICLES FROM FOOD
 

 

 
The NanoRelease Food Additive project will identify, evaluate, and develop methods needed to confidently detect, characterize, and evaluate intentionally produced nanoparticles released from food along the alimentary tract, as occurring through direct food additives or indirect incorporation in food through migration from food contact materials or environmental contamination.

O​BJECTIVES

 
 

 

  • Compile studies, methods, and guidelines relevant to understanding release of added engineered nanomaterials from food matrices.
  • Identify the critical measurement methodologies for understanding risk-relevant exposures to engineered nanomaterials in foods.
  • Identify gaps where additional methods development is needed.
  • Design and carryout methods-development plans to fill gaps so that generally accepted and useful methods are available.
  • Ruggedize the methods so that they can be confidently used across laboratories.  
  • Where warranted and feasible, submit methods to a standards development organization. ​
